Groupon Afflliate Program Questions
- Join Date
- March 22nd, 2011
I'm researching the Groupon Affilitate program and was hoping someone could answer or clarify some questions I had. I apologize if these have been answered already!
1. Geolocation - from what I read, it appears that Groupon can auto detect a user's location if I build a web based app or site. I assume this is via geo-ip lookup? Or is some other mechanism used?
2. Groupon Deals Segmentation - can we segment Groupon deals and only ask that specific categories get passed/displayed. Say I run a wine blog or app. Can I use the widget or API to specifically show ONLY wine deals, restaurants, bars etc and omit everything else?
3. Affiliate Program vs. Google Adsense - does anyone have any experience on conversion or performance of the Groupon Affiliate program vs. Google Adsense display advertising? I noticed that Groupon runs house ads via Adsense, but they're not targeted nor customized. My assumption is that the Affiliate program would generate a higher response rate given the contextual nature of the ads. Just wanted to see if anyone had any experience with that.

Hey sixspeedsam! Welcome to ABW, and thanks for your interest in Groupon
affiliate widget will display deals based on the user's location, or it will display the city the user last visited if we are able to determine that.
Hope that helps!
